The staff !!!! Cozy place grate time!!!!!))))
Private room was very good with good facilities. Staff were also very helpful. Good location and very close to the beach. The hostel will also lend you beach gear.
Very hot rooms even with air con on and no lift. Private rooms are on the third floor which means a lot of stairs to manage with heavy luggage.
- LOCATION!!! Especially in the weekend every carioca is on the beach. Also nice shops/bars/restaurants nearby. Safe area. - Breakfast was fine. - After check out we could use the shower incl towels.
- You pay for the location. Overall price too high for what you get. - Airport shuttle didn't show up (don't take the freezing cold blue Onibus! It took us more than 2 hours to get to Zbra). - No room cleaning. When reported they made clear we should have asked for it. - Shower was cold, really cold. - Noisy aircon. - Room smelled musty. - Yes, it is noisy, but it's a (youth) hostel in a lively neighborhood. If you don't like this, don't go here.
Location is good. Close to the beach I'm the upmarket area of Leblon
Staff weren't the friendliest and a little abrupt if you didn't want to do all the trips. Very few areas to chill out compared to other hostels and the few areas there're were staff used them all the time?!!!
EVERYTHING... the hostel is thought carefully for the comfort of travelers
The location is really good, there is free wifi and the air conditioning in the bedrooms are amazing! The staff is really cute, they changed my room and after the room change (to 22) my stay was something else, it became WAY better. There aren't many outlets, but they will lend you adapters. Breaksfast is simple, but has everything you'd like, except fruits.
I had a horrible room on the first night, near the stairs (room 13) and at 5am someone started to run on the stairs and waked me up! It was really annoying!!! The towels they gave me were light, but I could get new ones for free. There's not one bed, they put together two single beds... One day I had to take a cold shower, could not undestand why....
Do not BOOK! Terrible experience for the money. We booked a deluxe suite. Although this is an hostel we payed 90 pounds for the room which is a "deluxe" suite. The room was just opposite to a vent to the entire hostel and the noise was loud and all night from the vent. impossible to sleep. The room should not even exist. Hygiene of the toilet and hostel was terrible for the price paid. I would probably be less picky if I paid less than half.
Z.Bra's town, Leblon, is one of the best in Rio. It's worth notice it's only two blocks far from beach. Beds are confortable and lockers are big. Rooms and bathrooms are clean enough.
When I visited the hostel two years ago it was new and neat. Now it grew old and you can see some side efects: my locker was broken and you can see a bit of mould in the bathrooms. Regarding the locker it was fixed once staff was informed. An almost perfect place some years ago now is a good hostel. I still recomend it, but I strongly suggest looking for cheaper places in other towns.
Great staff very helpful and above location location location
Wi Fi and loud sounds of nearby clubs make sleeping before 11 pm impossible (2am on weekends). But if that's what you came here for
A typical youth hostel environment, cool atmosphere, very social, helpful staff. If you are looking for a hostel, its a really hip, great, environment with awesome helpful staff, and a minutes walk to the beach in a super nice, safe neighborhood.
Our room smelled a bit...musty, or moldy. It was a bit on the run down side. Its also pretty loud, it turns into a bit of a party at night and although we were on one of the higher floors we could still hear noise (laughing, loud music, people yelling outside on the patio) until about 3 am.
Good staff, lobby bar area has a nice ambience. Exchanged my room for one nicer as mine was leaking water due to rain.
Room had window facing the street where there was a bar, it was not so well insulated and one can hear noise from patrons so not ideal for people who want to sleep early.
This is a fantastic hostel in Rio - if I were to stay in a hostel again, I would definitely stay here. The location is fantastic and the staff are even better - even helping organize outings, dinner reservations, taxis, etc... Furthermore, it feels incredibly safe and the staff all speak great English.
I sent my daughter on her first trip solo to Rio for a soccer game. She was a little scared because she had never traveled alone. She was very comfortable and safe while staying at the all women's room. LOVED THE PLACE. Staff was awesome!! Big Shout Out to Gustavo, Front Desk for being so caring, attentive and nice. I recommend it for parents thinking about sending their kids to the Rio
Wi-Fi did not work.
Great staff, young, friendly, very knowledgable, safe area
So so noisy, loud music both in reception and in the room at night, sometimes noise and music coming from the 3 the clubs outside up to 5am, no sleep. Sheets were changed and fresh towels only once in 14 nights, we had to ask for this to be done, you shouldn't have too. Wifi worked for only 3 nights out of 14, some of the lights did not work in the room, the aircon leaked and there was no safe provided.
the staff is very helpful, super nice, they speak english, spanish, portuguese, love the decor and the very hot showers!! had an amazing stay there, close to the beach and awesome restaurants and bars!
Really nice, safe area in Leblon, with lots of nice bars (although takes a while to get to places other than Leblon and Ipanema). Great breakfast. Comfortable beds. Friendly helpful reception staff. Generally very clean except for the bedside area in the sleeping pods. When I reported a problem with my locker they fixed it immediately.
The rooms are a bit dark. The air conditioning at night was far too cold. The area at the side of my bed hadn´t been cleaned out. Maybe a little overpriced... it is nicer than most hostels, but also a lot more expensive.
Clean rooms, friendly staff, very nice reception bar.
Very poor wifi coverage.
